What an odd thing to read on an urban geography list: "we welcome submissions from all areas of agricultural economics". If the (theme issue) editor is serious about this, she should really be looking elsewhere. Spamming irrelevant lists is not the best way to go.

Subject: [URB-GEOG-FORUM] Call Special Issue "Towards Agro-food Economics and Rural development Challenges and Perspectives in Competitive Economies"
Please see the Call for Papers (attached) for a Special Issue in the journal Economies (ISSN 2227-7099) http://www.mdpi.com/journal/economies/special_issues/agrofood-ruraldevelopment
Economies <http://www.mdpi.com/journal/economies/> (now free of charge) is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Agro-food economics and rural development represent fundamental elements in achieving a highly competitive free market economy. The challenges of the contemporary agricultural model have imposed major macroeconomic changes both in terms of the rural economy and the transformation of competitiveness of the national economics paradigm, subjects which, lately, have become key research topics in understanding the functionality of the economic system in competitive economies. Additionally, in recent years, agro-food economics and rural development have experienced a major paradigm shift by aligning to the requirements of the new macroeconomic agricultural model. The main objective of this Special Issue is to highlight, among the most competitive and current futures of the agro-food economics paradigm, transformations and rural development challenges from a macroeconomic perspective. In this context, this Special Issue aims to discuss a wide range of topics regarding the role of agro-food economics and rural development challenges and changes in contemporary economies, regarding the core values of agricultural economics and rural development; the influence of the agricultural model on developing the inland economic structures is not within the scope of this issue.
In this Special Issue, we welcome submissions from all areas of agricultural economics, with a specific emphasis on the interactions among agro-food economics, rural development and resource productivity. We invite contributors to submit manuscripts with a high degree of novelty as full-length articles, reviews and conceptual papers; both theoretical and practical contributions that focus on these specific topics are encouraged. All submissions will be subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure before publication with the results disseminated in a timely fashion.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2018
